    The paste made for horses, can it be used for beagles. If so what one do I buy and how much do you give each month. For heartworm prevention.thanks I am sure this has been asked and answered before.

    My Vet said he doesn't recommend the paste, as it is met for a horse wormer. The ivermic in it isn't mixed evenly throughout the tube. When used in dogs, it may not get hardly any when given one or two clicks, then in the other two clicks may get an overdose. You just don't truly know how much the dog is getting.

    Ivermic Liquid given by mouth. It is the cheapest way to go. Not as affective as it use to be, but if followed on a monthly schedule works well. Once bottle is open put in fridge. My local Vet is old school, but does recommend the new expensive stuff over this, but does work with us beaglers and understands with high numbers of dogs we can have at times we want to find cheaper alternatives. The Ivermic will probably work as well as the expensive stuff if administered on schedule. He told me that a half CC using a syringe by mouth, is what I should give for my dogs size. I mostly have 15" class dogs. I just reduce the dosage for pups and the smaller dogs. Again, as with other medications, some dogs may check positive for heartworms. My sons Welsh Corgy just checked positive, but I'm not sure he followed his schedule as he should of.

    I order my Ivermic from Amazon, A bottle usually last me a year, can't get cheaper then that. Revival has a great price also, link below:

    Use the Cattle & Swine, the dosage recommended use to be 1/10 CC per 10 pounds orally, but Vets have increased it to more for the average beagle, since heartworms are getting resistant to it, the dosage is increased. I give mine 1/2 CC which would be 5/10 CC, which at one time was enough for a 50 Lb. dog. Dogs except for collie's can be over dosed to some extent without much or any effect. I don't know why Collie's can't be overdosed, actually Vets will not approve Ivermic for Collies.

    I gave a 13" female (22 Pounds) 6/10 of a CC of the 1% Sterile Ivomec for 30 days straight as a teatment for mange. This was what my vet advised. It worked with no side effects. I used to be a afraid of the stuff, but now I am not nearly as worried about it. Also a vet told me it will cause siezures in collies.

    1/2 cc of the liquid here straight given orally has worked here for a long time.It is easier to give than the paste in my opinion

    I really don't understand you can get the Sentinel for dogs for $95 a year and it keeps off fleas and ticks and it don't have a picture of a horse on it or a cow or Pig is this just a price issue thing I would like some help in understanding I've heard of ivermectin for years

    I got six head of dogs and I guess it is a little pricey when you have to give it up all at once which is what I do $600 a year to not have to worry about fleas ticks or worms I guess in my area what are we have a lot of fleas and ticks for eight months out of the year I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder
